  • I suggest getting the book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility
    You can get it on Amazon
    It will help you with all your questions and is fun to read

    As for your question, it depends on your temperature. If you don't know what I mean, get the book!

  • When I was in the hospital after delivering my son I saw on tv this study showed that women who ate breakfast was more likely to have a boy ;-D I thought it was funny cause my mom and sister didn't eat breakfast and had all girls. I ate breakfast and had a boy ;-D.

  • Yes that is a great book! Yeah you have to figure out when you ovulate to know when the best time to conceive is. I charted my temps. And for old wives tales it says to have a girl have sex a few days before you ovulate and to have a boy to have sex the day you ovulate. I kinda believe this only because we had no clue when i ovulated when I got preggo with my girl and with my boys I had sex on the day of ovulation.

  • Two weeks after your period/two weeks before you expect your next period, if you have a normal 28-day cycle, because you would ovulate around day 14.

    You would have to find out what kind of cycle you have first...and use an ovulation predictor kit.

  • i got 20 ovulation test from ebay so cheap. they say that when you take the test that you will be ovulating in the next 24 to 36 hours or something to do. it's best to have sex every other day since sperm needs to regenerate it's back to it's full capacity.

  • after your period, usually somewhere around the middle but it could be early or later. Take opk tests to see when you ovulate. Boy sperm lives longer then girl so you want to have sex a few days (1-2) before you ovulate so only the male sperm is left when the egg is released.

  • typically if your cycles are regular ( 28-31 days) You will ovulate on day 14 or 15.. Which means you start counting on DAY ONE of your Period ( flow).. and then start BD'ing on days 10- 18.
